Heh, TLC, I remember it well. I remember watching Waterfalls on TV and thinking that those were the most stupendous special effects ever envisioned by mankind, and I remember kind of liking it in a guilty way.

That's pretty much how I feel today, I kind of like it in a guilty way. Waterfalls is still a great song, so is Creep, but they are also incredibly dated, they sound really tacky now.

Still you really have to admire TLC for being the band which opened the door on all this female group R&B from En Vogue to Destiny's Child to Sugarbabes and Pussycat Dolls. In this sense they are still better than most of those bands. It doesn't feel anywhere near fresh, but it is still fun.

Final Grade



From Wikipedia:

The title refers to the different attributes that make up the personalities of each group member, Lisa Lopes having more of the crazy side in her, Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas representing the sexier element of the group, and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins being the cool member. The three words together create one word, "CrazySexyCool", which describes all women's personalities.
